Dr Mark Liu is a fashion and textile designer focused on advancing fashion design through the use of scientific principles to traditional techniques. His PhD research at the University of Technology Sydney applied modern mathematics to traditional fashion patternmaking to develop entirely new fields of fashion such as “Non-Euclidean Fashion Patternmaking”.
Mark is an acknowledged pioneer in the area of Zero-Waste Fashion design in the sustainable fashion movement in London. This developed out of his research while completing a Masters of Textiles Futures at Central Saint Martins College. He ran a purely Zero-Waste Fashion label and exhibited in Estethica at London Fashion Week for several seasons.
His work bridges the gap between fashion and science, opening up new possibilities, such as teaching STEAM skills through fashion design. Mark’s commissions have taken him all over the world exhibiting in museums in the UK, US, China, India, Korea, Amsterdam, Denmark and Australia.
